Once Upon A Time about 1915

In about 1915, Westby was a many horse town

Taken shortly after 1914 this view of South Main Street is looking north. The second building on the left is what was known as the Holman Store for many years. Next going north is a vacant lot and then next to that is the Thorson Photography building in the recently vacated Bank of Westby building that moved into its new office in 1914 and is now the Evenstad Building. In between these two buildings in 1937 the Westby Theater owned by L.V. Bergtold was built. The theater, Holman store and Thorson Photography building were located in where was Eric Erlandson’s Market Square Foods was built in 1990 and now is storage for different organizations and is currently leased by the Westby Cooperative Creamery. In the distance on the left is the State Bank of Westby and on the right can be seen the turret of the A. H. Dahl building. On the right, foreground, is the Johann Michelet building
